Course Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

 

The course introduces Irrigation and systems design including pump sizing and specification, water distribution systems, plant water requirement, drainage systems, and flood control.

 

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE

The purpose of this course is to introduce the knowledge on design in the field of hydraulic engineering through studying the various hydraulic and irrigation structures

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course, the student should be able to:

·        Learn the management of water resources through well designed drainage and irrigation systems.

·        Understand the design of both irrigation and drainage systems.

·        Understand the analysis of irrigation and drainage systems and their components.

·        Understand the flow measurements in open channels weirs and flumes.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

 

A student on completing this course is expected to:

·        Explain the hydrologic cycle, principles and processes necessary to effectively manage water resources through well designed drainage and irrigation systems.

·        Apply appropriate techniques and analyses to the effective design of both irrigation and drainage systems.

·        Design, test, and analyze engineering irrigation and drainage systems and their components.
